    Did anyone watch CNN tonight? Paula very much supported Pitties which was wonderful. She interviewed a trainer who basically said its not the breed but they way you treat it. People need to learn that. The trainer also had a gorgeous Pit named John Henry on the show.
    I'm glad that the U.S is finally beginning to see how brutal this disgusting sport is. Now hopefully they get more strict and enforce it more now since its very public.

    Reebok suspends sales of Vick football jerseys ...
    Dogfighting allegations against QB ‘too disturbing to ignore’ for company.

    NEW YORK - Athletic apparel maker Reebok said on Friday it is suspending sales of jerseys of National Football League star Michael Vick, who has been accused of sponsoring a dog-fighting operation.

    “While we respect the legal process, we find the allegations against Mr. Vick too disturbing to ignore,” said Reebok, a division of Germany’s Adidas, in a statement.

    Reebok does not have a separate marketing relationship with Vick, but it is the official supplier of all National Football League apparel and equipment, according to the statement.

    More charges expected in his case...

    -------------

    Now, why can't this happen when these idiot stars do something stupid?

    Why doesn't MADD try to boycott or protest at movie premieres?

    Way to GO, Nike !!!



    Who's next ??
    THANKS, Mr. Nike!

    Nike suspends endorsement deal with Vick ...

    Move follows Reebok's decision to suspend sales of quarterback’s jerseys.

    NEW YORK - Friday, July 27, 2007 -
    Nike has suspended its endorsment contract with Michael Vick, CNBC reported Friday.

    "Nike has suspended Michael Vick's contract without pay, and will not sell any more Michael Vick product at Nike owned retail at this time," the company said in a statement.

    "As we've said before, Nike is concerned by the serious and highly disturbing allegations made against Michael Vick and we consider any cruelty to animals inhumane and abhorrent. However, we do believe that Michael Vick should be afforded the same due process as any citizen in the United States, therefore, we have not terminated our relationship."





    They can CANCEL his contract after he's convicted!

    Had Vick not been indicted, I wonder if Nike and Reebok would still have taken the actions they did. Money talks.

    Edited to ask: Did anyone see the pit bull image with the caption that says, "I'm a lover, not a fighter"? I think I saw it as a magnet on Cafe Press, but I'm not sure.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Uhhh-Ohhh ... One of the Boys wants a "deal" ...

    Hey Vick ~
    You're a little late now ...

    Co-defendant doesn't want trial

    Taylor to have plea agreement hearing on Monday

    Associated Presss article via SI.com:
    Posted: Friday July 27, 2007 9:02PM; Updated: Saturday July 28, 2007 12:25AM

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- One of Michael Vick's co-defendants doesn't want to wait for trial.
    Instead, a plea agreement hearing has been scheduled for TonyTaylor at 9 a.m. Monday in the federal dogfighting conspiracy case.

    Taylor's hearing was added to U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson's docket Friday, a day after he and the other three defendants pleaded not guilty before the same judge. Vick and the others still are scheduled for trial Nov. 26.

    Prosecutors claim Taylor, 34, found the Surry County property purchased by Vick and used it as the site of "Bad Newz Kennels," a dogfighting enterprise. The Hampton man also allegedly helped purchase pit bulls and killed at least two dogs that fared poorly in test fights.

    Taylor's lawyer, Stephen Ashton Hudgins of Newport News, did not immediately return a phone message, and federal prosecutors have declined to talk about the case.

    An 18-page indictment issued July 17 charged the four men with conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities, and conspiring to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture. The maximum punishment is five years in prison and fines of up to $250,000.

    According to the indictment, the dogfighting ring executed underperforming dogs by drowning, hanging and other brutal means. It alleges that the fights offered purses as high as $26,000.

    The gruesome details outlined in the indictment have fueled protests and public outrage against Vick, the star quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has banned Vick from the Falcons' training camp while the league investigates.

    Charged along with Vick and Taylor are Purnell A. Peace, 35, of Virginia Beach, and Quanis L. Phillips, 28, of Atlanta.

    All four remain free without bond. When U.S. Magistrate Dennis Dohnal set the conditions for their release Thursday, he commended Taylor for admitting to using illegal drugs despite never being convicted of a drug offense. He ordered periodic drug testing for Taylor.

    Peace and Phillips each have drug convictions and were ordered to submit to testing, as well as an electronic monitoring program. Taylor was spared the electronic monitoring.

    Neither drug testing nor monitoring were ordered for Vick.

    I bet you anything Taylor "sings" like a canary about Vick. BAD NEWZ for you Vick.

    Do you suppose Vick is still thinking "everybody gonna love me?"

    Thank you Kay for the beautiful sig!

    I pray Taylor squels like a pig. I can't believe Vick pleaded "Not Guilty". Is he crazy!? If only I had five minutes alone with him. What a time I would have!!
